Thanks for the comments. I'm sure RS is the "#1" in selling products such a cell phones and batteries but i seems to me their line of cd players and steros are limited. Also, their prices of some things are higher, then they will have "sales" on items to make them reasonable. I'm thinking they are trying to get rid of their: amateur radio and software. A amateur radio operator would (in my opinion) not buy the RS model (now lowered to $249) because they would know enough not to. Only the FRS and CBs would sell because people who buy them are not as knowledgable. So although RS has some of the best selection on some things, i still think some things never sell and stay in storage until they get rid of it by having sales.
